Impressive Performance By the Mustangs over the Augusta Panthers
January 12, 2014By Christopher Jennings of Bishop Brossart High School
The Bishop Brossart Mustangs were flawless in their first game of the ALL A 10th Region Tournament. From the start to the finish, the Mustangs passed, shot, and defended their opponent with perfection. As Marc Hardin, a reporter for the Cincinnati Enquirer stated in his report of the game, "The seniors on the Bishop Brossart boys’ basketball team have been playing alongside each other virtually nonstop since the beginning of last season." This is a very true statement and was evident on the floor yesterday. Jake Jennings passed the ball with precision. Alex Trentman, who seems to be made of rubber at times, with the way he contorts his body and still finds a way to finish. Drew Burns plays so strong and wide in the paint. Erik Reiger plays so consistent and manages the toughest of assignments on defense, while scoring points by driving to the basket or from beyond the arc. And Spencer Hackworth who finds the big men down low and knocks down three pointers in bunches.
From the tip, the Mustangs poured it on, scoring the first nine points and continuing to add on the their lead. The Mustangs led 21-11 in the first quarter and 39-22at the half. In the second half, the Mustangs forced the game into a running clock and finished the game with a final score of 76-38.
The atmosphere was great, and the highlight of this game was the Mustang student section who showed up in droves, and cheered on their Mustangs to victory. They were loud and entertaining. No doubt, the players on the court were aware of the cheering section, which helped to energize them to the win. Congrats to the Mustang faithful for being so supportive.
Up next for Brossart is a matchup with the winner of Paris and Bracken County game, on Wednesday night at 8PM at NKU Regents Hall.
